It wasn't necessarily photography that was my first love but just images in general. I truly believe that an image is worth a thousand words, probably more. The reason for that is that images say more to people than words because, unfortunately, people need to see things to believe it. This is why I chose to study photojournalism. I know that through that field I could help make a difference in the world.
I recently started working at the Independent Florida Alligator as a freelance photographer. I usually spend all my days looking for interesting things around campus and the city to take pictures and report on. It is really giving me the experience that I need and it's making me more passionate about the field and my potential.
